Lepage, has received the 10th Glenn Gould Prize in recognition of his unique lifetime contribution to
Mr. Lepage has a well-deserved reputation, in Canada and
internationally, for his incredible work as a director, playwright,
actor and filmmaker. His highly visual style integrates new

celebrate four centuries of history.
On behalf of Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Government of Canada,
I offer my sincere congratulations to Robert Lepage for his remarkable
